Digicel to support Famli Seif project
Digicel PNG Digicel is proud to participate in a new safety and crime prevention initiative being undertaken with Yumi Lukautim Mosbi Projek (YLM) and Protect Security.
The new Digicel-provided Famli Seif line aims to support police response and assist people in crisis, by providing a free rapid-reaction communications and transport service, available in Port Moresby, Lae, Rabaul, Madang, Mount Hagen and Goroka.
A call on the toll-free Digicel line 72221234 will be responded to by Protect Security in any of these regional centres. Protect Security will move as quickly as possible to transport the vulnerable caller to a safe location, and away from immediate danger.
Remember, "7222 brings Protect to you, 1234 opens the door" on family & sexual violence.
This latest initiative follows-up Digicel PNGs receipt of the Organizational Human Rights Defender of the Year award for 2008. This honour was based on Digicel’s bringing mobile services to the grassroots across PNG, and for Digicel’s provision of a toll-free HIV line to BAHA – the Business Coalition Against HIV and AIDS.
Digicel PNG uses mobile services to support grassroots communities through activities such as the street vendor programme, the Domestic Violence Toll Free Hotline 7200 8001 for abused women seeking support, the Susu Mamas Toll Free Hotline 7200 MAMA (7200 6262) providing young women and mothers with information about infant feeding and pregnancy, and the 72002242 HIV infoline provided to BAHA.
